Ajax was one of the major suppliers of hand brakes for both the new and replacement markets, along with Ellcon-National and Universal.
Ajax had probably the most recognizable hand brake housing of all the manufacturers with their stamped (or pressed) bell-shaped
design. Hand brakes have the manufacturers date stamped on them, and on Ajax units, the stamp is on the housing between the hand
wheel shaft and the gear shaft.
By the early nineties, the Ajax Consolidated Company merged with the American SAB Company becoming SAB Ajax, which later
exited the hand brake market, leaving only Ellcon-National, Klasing and Universal to supply the industry. The following pages contain a
number of photographs of Ajax hand brake models in a variety of applications.

Here’s a view of a 1966 Model 5 (drawing 14665) from the left side,

Barber S-2 70-Ton Birdsboro Cast 8/66
Here’s a roller bearing Barber S-2 truck cast by Birdsboro at the Birdsboro, Pennsylvania foundry 8/66. When photographed in 2006, it was
sitting under an RBOX box car. The Birdsboro pattern serial number is 4371 (cast to the right) and the AAR code number is F7S-04AN-UA.
Chief Transportation Products has been providing the rail car industry with products for over 30 years. Their line consists of sliding and
plug doors, load dividers, hatch covers, nailable steel floors, etc. The CTP line of doors dates back to the days when they were
manufactured by Equipco, a division of UNARCO (Union Asbestos and Rubber Company) whose door and hand brake assets were sold
to Railcar Specialties in the mid-nineties. CTP in turn purchased the assets of RCS in May 2001 and continues to this day manufacturing
the line of plug and sliding doors under the Chief Transportation Products name.
The following pages contain a number of photographs of Chief sliding doors in single door applications.
Chief Transportation Products Single 10’ 6” by 10’ 4” 6-Panel Sliding Door
This 10’ 6” wide CTP 6-panel replacement door is on BNSF 759782, an FMC-built 6348 cubic-foot car, built
5/75 and painted 11/97 at CX. This door was installed 4/03.
Aero Transportation Products, Inc.
Aero Transportation Products began in 1983 after purchasing a manufacturing company that provided fiberglass and molded plastic parts
for the truck industry. The focus was changed to supplying component parts, mainly fiberglass hatch covers for covered grain hoppers.
The line was expanded to include aluminum hatch covers and batten bars as well as aluminum covers for coiled steel gondolas. In 2001,
ATP purchased the line of outlet gates from ASF-Keystone and market them under the ATP name to car builders and for the replacement
market.
The following pages contain a number of photographs of ATP gravity outlet gates on covered hoppers.

This is an ATP 55000052BRN3 gravity outlet gate, built 5/05 at ATP’s McPhearson, Kansas plant.
Berwick Forge and Fabricating, founded in 1962, started out rebuilding freight cars after taking possession of the former ACF plant in
Berwick, Pennsylvania. In 1969 they built their first complete box cars which included Dreadnaught-type ends. Their own corrugated
non-terminating “sine-wave” ends first showed up on cars in 1972, although some customers were still ordering Dreadnaught ends.
Berwick’s ends are easily identified by being riveted tot he car side, although some later cars had welded ends.
The following pages contain photographs of BFF non-terminating corrugated ends on box cars.
Berwick Forge and Fabricating 2/3/5 Corrugated Plate C End Built 1/78
Here’s another 2/3/5 Plate C end, but it was originally a Plate B car.
NOKL 88287 was built 1/78 as part of the MNJ 120735-120934 series
as a 5037 cubic-foot single sliding door car and had it’s interior height
increased in 1989. That increased the capacity to 5277 cubic feet. Here
it’s in Kent, Washington during July 2005.
Pacific Car and Foundry was a smaller builder of freight cars, with shops in Renton, Washington. While they built box cars, flat cars and
cabooses, mechanical and bunkerless refrigerated cars were their largest products by volume. Along with building the underframes and
car sides, PCF also manufactured replacement plug doors and roofs for refrigerated cars.
The following pages contain photographs of PCF flat, peaked and arched roofs.
Pacific Car and Foundry 50’ Arched Ribbed Roof
This is a PCF arched, ribbed roof with ribbed end panels. It’s on ATSF 524862, a 5154 cubic-foot bunkerless reefer built by PCF 8/77. It’s
